Autograph letter signed to his friend, the cavalry offi cer Henri Bruyant, when he was asked if he was an offi cial guest at a Celebration of the city of Autun. Belfort, 14.VI.1957. 2 p. in-8°. On printed letterhead “The General de Gaulle”. With autograph envelope with postage stamp. “... The town of Autun - if it so desires - should write to me about it towards the end of July. I will see so if this visit to the valiant and dear city can be granted with the obligation I have made myself of signifi cantly limiting my own participation in public ceremonies…”. Charles de Gaulle was a French army offi cer and statesman who led the French Resistance against Nazi Germany during World War II, and chaired the Provisional Government of the French Republic from 1944 to 1946 in order to re-establish democracy in France. In 1958, he was elected President of the Council of Ministers. He rewrote the Constitution of France and founded the Fifth Republic after approval by referendum. He was elected President of France later that year, a position he was re-elected to in 1965 and held until his resignation in 1969.
